Clear medium amber colour with virtually no head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy honey, spicy honey, dark honey. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet with a long duration, spicy honey, woody, deep honey - dark honey. Body is medium, texture is syrupy, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light alcoholic.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Screwtop bottle from Weyn’s, City2 Mall, Brussels
Measured Final Gravity: 1057

Amber color. Strange aroma, chemicals, glue, honey, perfume, fruits. Sweet mouthfeel, not syrupy; flavor of dark honey, chestnut honey, strong fruity presence, and also quite high acidity, almost vinegar; some chemical and alcohol feeling also in the flavor; there is some light astringency in the end.
Controversial, it has nice features (acidity, fruitiness...) that would push it high, combined with flaws (chemicals and alcohol).

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 14, 2011
A nice sample courtesy of Marko, via Fiulijn, great thanks to both of them! It poured copper body with tiny legs. Very nice honey aroma. Herbal honey flavor, not too herbal like some honeys gets. Full bodied with sticky palate offers long sweet honey finish. Pretty simple, but really nice mead.

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 17, 2011
One of Alexes of course (thanks fiulijn!). Brownish/reddish amber body. Nose... rubber (shoe sole), dried figs, carob, sweet banana, slightly sourish, but dominantly sweet. Full honey taste, woody, sweet, notes of carob maybe again, vague, very vague sweet mint. Some alcohol, light, in the finish again, more warming than in the taste. I can see the relationship to the 8 Year Old. Sligthly unbalanced, but hardly bad for it, very good stuff!

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle, from a shop in Antwerpen. Deep red brown, no head or condition.Sweet and woody in the mouth with a slight hint of apple, much the same in the mouth with a touch of alcohol apparent, sweet citric apple finish with some alcohol.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2005
Clear brown with reddish shine. Sure looks like cognac. Very vinous nose, sweetness coming through but only just recognisable as honey. Tastes like a very sweet wine, honey comes through better, also notes of wood. Not unpleasant, but not really my cup of tea. I’ll stick to the beers...

JorisPPattyn (7930) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2005
Clear red-foxy amber. Very vinous, and brandy-ish, even like old brandy or Pineau des Charentes. Sweet, honey-ish smell. VERY sweet taste indeed. Honeyish character is unmistakable; vague yeasty notes, dates and dark candi sugar. Very sticky MF, slick, alcoholwarming. "Pittige" (hot) they say, but I would have liked it a bit drier. Very nice nose, however.
